The Houston Rockets today announced they have acquired guard Kevin Porter Jr. from Cleveland in exchange for a protected second round pick. Porter (6-4, 203) was the 30th overall pick by the Cavaliers in the 2019 NBA Draft following his freshman season at USC.

“I think a lot of our 3s are assisted,” Alex Caruso said. “I don’t know what the numbers are on that, but I’d be willing (to think) that a lot of them are created from somebody drawing help and getting open shots. Just guys being open and shooting in rhythm — that’s part of what makes us a great team. “We have so many guys who get to that paint and draw attention and so many guys who complement and can stretch the floor. I’d say everybody but maybe (Montrezl Harrell) is stretching to (the) 3-point line — that plays minutes. At any given time, you’ve got four, five guys out there that can shoot 3s. That’s really hard to guard.”
Caldwell-Pope, for his part, has learned how to read where Davis and James are when they have the ball and when to move to ensure he remains in their line of passing vision. “I’m right on point when they’re either posting and then looking for the pass out,” Caldwell-Pope said. “Sometimes it’s just the flow of the game, finding those sweet spots. … Just moving and not staying still where they’ll be able to find me.”
